LONDON, Aug. 10 (UPI) -- A single winning ticket was purchased for the 148 million pound ($232 million) Euromillions jackpot Friday, lottery officials said.

Lottery organizer Camelot confirmed there was only one ticket with the winning numbers: 11, 17, 21, 48 and 50, and lucky stars 9 and 10, the BBC reported.

"Lady Luck is clearly shining down on the U.K. once again with another big Euromillions win this year," a National Lottery spokeswoman said.

The jackpot win is the second-biggest in National Lottery history. Colin and Chris Weir of Largs won 161 million pounds ($251 million) in July 2011.

It is the seventh Euromillions jackpot to be won in the United Kingdom this year, the BBC said.

Camelot said it "looked forward to welcoming the lucky ticket-holder into the National Lottery's millionaires' club."
